    I wonder if there's a lot more turmoil beneath the GOP surface than meets the eye.  Specifically, that there are several opposing camps within the GOP (Crist, Jeb Bush, and right-wingers) and some power struggles are going on.

    I can imagine that a person may want not want to cooperate with Crist for various reasons, or protect his/her existing turf rather than become a lame-duck  Senator.

    And Crist may have similar struggles with deciding what to do with the FL-10 race.  That's his home turf and I would not be surprised if he has a successor to Young in mind already for 2012. It may not be in the Crist's/GOP's best interests to move that candidate ahead to 2010.
